Names of 3,892 national service evaders given to cops
KOTA BARU: The National Service Training Department (JLKN) has submitted to the police the names of 3,892 errant candidates who had evaded national service (NS) training from 2010.
JLKN director-general Datuk Abdul Hadi Awang Kechil said the names were submitted to the police to enable further investigation before any action was taken against the candidates.
"We don't have any choice but to submit the names to the police," he told reporters after launching the movement of NS trainees of Group 3 Series 9/2012 at Mara Poly-Tech here Sunday.
Abdul Hadi said the police would conduct thorough investigation on the candidates before referring their cases to the Attorney-General's Chambers for further action.
"Those who are found guilty will be subjected to not more than 240 hours community service," he said, adding that even though the errant candidates had completed the community service, they would not be exempted from undergoing the NS training. - Bernama
